Florida pays tribute to Tom Petty during game against LSU

How to watch LSU football's game against Florida

And while both Florida and LSU are struggling to stay relevant nationally, Saturday's game presented us with a tremendous tribute to the late-great Tom Petty.

The song was played after the UF band's traditional playing of "We Are the Boys from Old Florida" before the start of the fourth quarter Saturday against LSU. However, Twitter user Cody Worsham caught a larger chunk of the song from the stadium and it is wonderful. The Gators marched 75 yards on seven plays after Lamical Perine punched in from two yards out for a 17-10 score.

West Virginia has controlled the pace and the stat sheet through one half, but TCU holds a 7-3 lead in Fort Worth. But the Tigers were bailed out on a third down later in the drive when Gators cornerback Duke Dawson was flagged for holding.

The Tigers shifted twice before Derrick Dillon went in motion and took a jet sweep handoff for a gain of 30 yards.

Bucs kicker Nick Folk: 'This one's on me'
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers can't shake their kicking woes. "I left points out there. 20-19. After the game, Folk looked like someone who had just left a funeral.

Florida moved into scoring position once in the first half, when Devin White made a tackle inside the 10 to force third down and Feleipe Franks had nowhere to throw before running out of bounds. Christian LaCouture and Greg Gilmore combined for a third-down sack on the possession after that, forcing Florida to punt. After Etling completed a couple of passes on third down, Russell Gage broke a 15-yard run on the outside to give the Tigers a first down at the 43.

Petty's death last week did come as a shock to everyone, and there have been tributes just like this all around, and they've all been incredibly touching. "Tom Petty is a beloved figure for so many Gator fans". DRIVE: 11 plays, 86 yards, 5:18.

LSU did exploit that deficiency with 133 yards on the ground in the first half.

OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE GAME: Etling managed a good game with 9 of 16 passing for 125 yards and a touchdown. Malik Davis 25-yard run to the LSU 7.
